Mr Craig Pearson

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Evening Star (Ipswich)


Mr Craig Pearson complained to the Press Complaints Commission about an interview piece with him, in which he spoke of his childhood friendship with Chelsea FC manager, Andre Villas-Boas. The complainant was concerned that the piece attributed a number of comments to him which he denied having made.


While the newspaper did not accept the inaccuracy of any of its quotes, the matter was resolved when it agreed to remove the online article and gave an undertaking not to publish the disputed quotes in future.
